Question about 8289ws and 8282ws

Does anyone know why there is a different size Gray tank in these units?? We are looking at them both.

If you can believe the specs listed on the Forest River site, it would indicate that there's only 1 gray water tank in the 8282WS where most of the floorplans have 2 38 G gray tanks...one for the shower, one for the galley. Not sure why this would be as both floorplans should be able to have the same waste tank locations.

I'd have the dealer check directly with his Rockwood sales rep for confirmation.

Dave,
I see what you are saying, so I guess the Best answer would come from FF Direct??

If it's confirmed as only 1 gray tank, that would be the deal breaker for me with that floorplan. It not so much an issue if you only camp with full hook-ups, which we seldom do.

I'd expect the tank layout to be the same for most of the Rockwood 5W. There's a gray and black side by side (oriented north/south) under the bathroom, the fresh water tank across over the axles and a galley tank across the frame behind that. Some floorplans have the half bathroom and there'd be another black tank behind the galley tank. I can't see a reason that they couldn't have the 2nd gray tank with the 8282WS floorplan.

Do they have separate dump connections, or are all plumed into one?

P.S. I have a 8289WS question in this thread that you may be able to answer.

The shower and bathroom sink are on 1 and the galley is on it's own. They have 2 outlets about a foot apart.......

I guess I'll be doing some plumbing work. Have to wait until I see ours to see what type of fittings will be required.

Thanks.

The 8289WS has a grey and black side by side up front, a grey in front of the axles for the galley and the fresh is behind the axles.
